--- An intriguing, largely instrumental collection of unheard solo acoustic demos, electrifying high-energy isolated live guitar tracks & unreleased studio recordings. Sonically speaking, an instrumental goldmine; ten tracks of pure, unadulterated Fred "Sonic' Smith. Essential listening for fans of one of Detroit rock’s most important and influential guitarists.
“Amazed to get this most unexpected look at the songwriting of Fred. Beautiful and revelatory ... the acoustic treatments evoked a very familiar feeling. It provided me with an inner view on how he constructed those songs, not always easy to discern from loud, live and distorted full band performances. Easy enough to get the chord patterns, but I often missed the subtle nuances which really give the tunes their unique flavor ... on your CD it’s all right there in plain view” --- Deniz Tek, Radio Birdman
"Smith unleashed an ear shattering crush of sound during his heyday... some of the most biting and distinctive leads that somehow defined what living in Detroit means." - Chip Sercombe, Orbit
